NIKK stands for Nordic Information on Gender. NIKK is a Nordic cooperation body under the Nordic Council of Ministers. We collect and disseminate knowledge about politics and practice, facts and research in the area of gender equality in a Nordic perspective.
The Nordic Council of Ministers has published a report that summarizes the five Nordic countries’ Beijing+25 review reports. It takes stock of progress made thus far and points towards areas of opportunities for the Nordics, where the prospects for gender equality really lie: in the agency of young people, in intersectional approaches and mind-sets and in the engagement of men and boys in the making of gender equality.
Our active projects
Generation Equality Nordic
To mark the 25th anniversary of the UN Action Plan of Beijing in 1995 on gender equality, the Danish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers for Gender Equality 2020, together with UN Women, will make Nordic young people’s perspectives on global equality issues visible. NIKK has been commissioned to develop and implement the Nordic sub-campaign #GenerationEqualityNordic.

The Nordic Council of Ministers has initiated a research-based feasibility study in order to highlight the knowledge gaps on sexual harassment in working life and to make proposals on how to address it. NIKK has been commissioned to conduct the feasibility study, which will be completed in March 2020.
